Smart ForTwo Tank is an impressive piece of art

Article by Christian A., on November 28, 2010

Some people can't leave the Smart Fortwo alone, with its urban practicality. But the Smart Tank has been the most impressive. The Fortwo is given a camouflage scheme from the German Army and it has a full set of tracks.

It even has German number plates, so it should be legal on the road. But the conversion is likely to have been difficult! Since the Fortwo has small dimensions, its suspension has to be shortened.

This is not a problem since the custom vehicle would not be travelling fast. Its rear wheels were replaced by the ones from a light armored vehicle.

While driving the tracks, the track length was shortened by removing some links. The Fortwo now has a new front bumper that wraps around the tracks. Access to the interior is made through the sunroof, thus the doors had to be welded shut.

A technical problem for the Fortwo mini tank is steering, which is done by changing the speed of each tack in a normal tank. The steering needs a special gearbox that probably does not exist in the size required by the Fortwo.

It has a serial number on the front. The Fortwo tank only goes forward and back. The car is now painted in modern-day German Army color scheme. Other tank-like features of the Fortwo tank include a radio antenna, a hatch on the front, and side containers for ammunition.
